You realise you can get FE cards for cheaper than 750 that wipe that 6700XT right?
and while most of the 3080tis prices are an absolute rip off i wouldnt really compare one with a 6700XT merely based on their VRAM lol
Timespy benchmarks..... oh lordy
In most game benchmarks, they are comparable.
CPU avg : 3.70 ms (270 FPS) vs 2.42 ms (413 FPS)
GPU avg : 7.75 ms (129 FPS) vs 9.04 ms (110 FPS)
total avg : 8.23 ms (121.5 FPS) vs 9.62 ms (104 FPS)
That's roughly a +17% increase from a heavily overclocked 2080Ti. The stock 2080Ti was shown at 11.89 ms which is 84 FPS avg, that would mean a 44,6% increase from a stock 2080Ti.
while valid point I dont think most people bother running RT even if they can
Definitely recommend the following to feast your eyes on RT goodness:
- the ascent
- metro enhanced
- bright memory infinite
- watch dogs legion
Good YT channel that shows the difference of very well:
With a 3080, you'll have no issues with perf., use dlss quality for 1440p and balance for 4k.
What facts?So go ahead and buy the 8 GB card, don't be mad at me for pointing out the facts. And your comparison to 64x AA is disingenuous because while that kind of a workload would be near impossible to run by any hardware, present or future, all these settings require is a bit more memory. THAT'S IT! You don't even need a more 'powerful' (processing) card.
9.5GB Vram used which means any 8GB Vram buffer will be completely fine since the usage you are seeing is what the game allocates, not what is needed which is a lower amount than this, sometimes substantially less.Ooh another memory heavy game
25gb memory used at 4k with RTX GI.
with RTX GI off memory usage drops by 10gb!
